Listen to the sound of birds waking at dawn on a quiet morning stroll around Slapton Ley.

Enjoy the overall orchestra of sounds as well as tuning into the different calls of individual birds. Spring is a time when nature and the nature reserve is a hive of activity. Learn a few news calls of some of our resident birds as well as some that join us for the summer, whilst taking in parts of the nature reserve not normally open to the public. Foldout guides can be borrowed during the walk and can be purchased at the end.
